Riser stuck Sheppard and Gillies in the NHL too early because, at that point, he had already been blowing it for YEARS on prospects. The farm was ALREADY empty. And he knew it.

So, he takes his two most visible prospects, dumps them on the team, and tries to cover-up the huge void below them. Look over here Wild fans! Look at these two promising forwards making the NHL! Because they have so much potential!

Sheppard and Gillies on the Wild were Riser's Hail Mary. If they magically worked out and became roster players, he would have held on for a few more seasons. But it didn't work out. The cover-up failed. And everybody found out who empty the prospect cellar was.
